It’s that time of year in my garden where ‘YEP tea’ is screaming out to be made 😀 🌿 YEP tea is made up of yarrow, elderflower and peppermint and is an old traditional herbal combination to take at the first sign of a cold. These herbs are prolific once they get going in the garden, and this is A great remedy to have prepared in your cupboard for when the cooler season hits. Their antiviral, diaphoretic and immune stimulant properties work superbly. #herbalmedicine#diy#selfsufficient#selfcare#homeherbalism#deansmarsh#yarrow#elderflower#peppermint#tea

Borrowing an old-world technique of preserving in vinegar, American colonialists developed the shrub. A blend of fruit juices, vinegar and sweetener, a shrub is perfectly balanced; sweet and tart. Photo Cred: @adamhefferman

Our elder tree. In early summer its branches bent with basket-loads of fragrant flowers (those went straight into cordial) and, later in the season, ripe elderberries fed the wood pigeons full to bursting. Time now for a well deserved rest.

I brought some elder flowers from the market this morning in #gardengoals - to grow my own! .
I’m going to have a try at making Elderflower Champagne 🥂 traditionally made for Midsummer celebrations but if they are growing locally so I Trust they are ready to use
The elder is sacred to the Mother Goddess, and is often called the Witch’s Tree, the Elder Mother or Queen of the Trees. It is protective, with wonderful healing propertie. It aids transformation change and renewal 🍃 .
I’ve seen a few different recipes all with different quantities of water so it will be an experiment as to wether it will work..
What you need:
5 litres Spring water 💧
8-10 elderflower heads
4 tbsp white wine vinegar
Once I’ve got all my ingredients together I’ll share the process in our story.. .
I got busy and made some Elderflower cordial to enter in the Kyneton Show
Elderflowers are just such delicate and beautiful flowers. If there is not a shade of palest green named after them I’d be disappointed!
I love how the cordial literally bottles their delicate fragrance. I wanted this to be particularly potent so when the recipe called for 30 flower umbels, I put 60 and I used the River Cottage recipe. Let’s see if the judges like it!
Just harvested a whole lot of elder flowers (sambucus nigra) for my cold and flu tea blend before this wild wind knocks them all off. I tend to cut the flowers from the top of the of the tree to keep the height low, but only shake the flowers off the lower branches so I’ll maybe get some elder berries in late summer where I can reach them. The birds still get most of them though. Elder is fantastic for reducing viral replication rates, is anti inflammatory, gently improves circulation, and helps to reduce mucous formation. It can also be made into Cordial and champagne if you feel so inclined. And of course elder trees were traditionally used to make wands because of their long straight branches. I’d make some for my kids for opening of ‘The curse of Grindelwald’ tomorrow if they weren’t such cool teens now 😉. I’d love to hear of any of your experiences with elder trees.
A complex and citrus heavy concentrate that allows you to go back to a time when a Radler didn’t come in a can but came about when a quality beer was enhanced by the addition of refreshing citrus flavour. Using fresh citrus zest and juice, as well as a host of other ingredients that add citrus complexity and work well with a good brew, we’ve created a product that turns any bottled lager, pilsner or pale ale into a delicious Radler that is sure to quench your thirst.
